Boys track and field: Hilltoppers take second at Albuquerque

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team picked up a solid second-place at its second meet of the season Saturday.

The Hilltoppers earned 71 points at Saturday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Invitational, held at Milne Stadium. They finished as the runner-up in team standings behind Class 5A Cibola, which earned an impressive 147 points to grab the team victory.

Los Alamos easily topped the other two Class AAAA entries at Saturday’s meet, St. Pius X and Bernalillo, which finished fifth and sixth in the final standings.

Hilltopper Kyle Pittman earned his second state qualifying mark of the season Saturday, winning the 1,600 meters with a time of 4:25.90.

Meanwhile, newcomer Charles Rappe took first in the 300 hurdles and second in the 110 hurdles. Rappe has won both 300 hurdle races he’s taken part in so far in the state of New Mexico and actually ran a better 110 time (15.66) than he did a week ago at Rio Rancho.

Los Alamos head coach Larry Baca said he’s encouraged by the numerous personal best marks his team managed Saturday, but said there’s still plenty of improvement that needs to be done.
